This Day in MendoHistory: June 3, 1912- A Scorcher on the Coast


In collaboration with Mendocino’s Kelley House Museum, MendoFever will be publishing their “This Day in Mendocino History” Facebook posts. The Kelley House Museum works hard to document and curate Mendocino County’s rich history and can be visited in the seaside town of Mendocino.

On this day in Mendocino history…

June 3, 1912 – One of the warmest days experienced on the coast for a long time. At Burke’s railroad tie making camp (located one mile upstream from the Little Northfork), the thermometer registered 96 degrees. In a number of places close to the coast, the thermometer reached the hundred mark.
